Snow Crash ended abruptly, but the ending was not really worse than the rest of it had promised. Tons of excess verbage from cover to cover. But I liked the premises, settings, and characters… Aside from the much excess of it (not so many words necessary to tell the story), I liked it. I’d really like it as a a well-done (multipart?) movie.

Card's Shadow of the Giant

slated in reading at 12:16 am
I’m posting this because I was half-horrified to learn about this today; how come nobody told me a new Ender book was coming out? I came upon it by chance — there was a reference on someone’s blog about running into Orson Scott Card in a bookstore, and a visit to Card’s site Hatrack.com revealed that Shadow of the Giant is already in stores. Sheesh. The first three chapters are available online.. I do think Card’s writing isn’t as impressive as it used to be, but I’m already in love with the Ender’s series and its characters, so my order for this book has been necessarily placed.
